Recipe: Pulled Chicken

Last year I wanted to start eating a bit better and healthier. In the Netherlands, we have something called a Kapsalon. It is a special kinda version of kebab.

As I loved the Kapsalon, but it is really unhealthy. Like 1500 calories for a portion. So that says enough. I decided to make my own healthier version with sweet potato instead of fries and pulled chicken instead of kebab.

I have to say, it tastes different, but it is still really good! So I wanted to share the recipe with you.

It is so good and so easy to make! Use it in a salad, in your homemade pita, on nachos or something else. I use my homemade sambal in this recipe

Pulled Chicken

Everyone knows pulled pork. I can tell you, pulled chicken is just as good. We love it because you get way more flavour in the chicken. You can use it with a lot of different recipes!
